Whitewater Awards

The Whitewater Awards is a platform that highlights and showcases the best in the world of whitewater kayaking from freestyle, big rapids, waterfalls, expeditions and river stewardship.

The Awards are peer voted by a group of nearly 200 of the world’s most elite whitewater kayakers to honor the cinematography, photography and athleticism in the sport.

By nature, kayaking is dangerous and requires years of practice, preparation and understanding to acquire skills necessary for the level of this content. Always paddle within your ability. Everyone should kayak though – get involved with your local kayak club and experience the magic of this amazing sport and its vibrant community!

The Whitewater Awards will be held at the Egyptian Theatre in downtown Boise, Idaho on June 14th, 2018!!
